Join Tim Grey for an in-depth discussion in this video Synchronizing metadata, part of Lightroom 5: 1 Organizing Your Photos.
…In many situations, the metadata updates you apply to…a single image will be equally applicable to other images.…When that's the case, you can use the Synchronize…feature in order to update metadata across multiple photos.…Let's take a look at how we can work with the option to synchronize our metadata.…Here I have one image of a pod of Orca whales and I also have another…neighboring image of a single Orca and I'd…like to update the metadata information for these images.…
And I want to synchronize that information.…If I select multiple images, because I'm in the Loop…view, any updates will actually only affect the currently active image.…In other words, the image I'm looking at in the Loop view.…If I wanted to, I could switch to the Grid view.…And that way, all of the selected images will…be updated based on any changes that I make.…But often times I find that it's convenient to remain in…the Loop view and be able to apply updates to multiple images.…And there are a couple of ways we could go about that.…
